The national capital Lisbon is located 110 miles (177 kilometers) south of Coimbra.
The Estadio Cidade de Coimbra and the Praca da Republica are just some of the things to do and see in and near Coimbra.
Coimbra isn't the only spot in this popular region worth exploring; visitors with plenty of time should also head off and experience the charms of the nearby landscapes, communities and cultural attractions. Journey 12 miles (19 kilometers) south to Mealhada, where you can check out the National Forest of Bussaco and Palacio do Bucaco.
Organise your transportation and spend some time in Coimbra, a shopping and transport center for the region, situated 2 miles (3 kilometers) away from Coimbra. This bigger city offers a wide range of points of interest, including Conimbriga, Jardim Botanico and Coimbra University. Portugal dos Pequenitos, Praca da Republica and Velha Cathedral (Se Velha) are also good to visit.
Centro is graced with an interesting religious history; learn more at the area's beautiful churches. If the weather is fine, head outdoors to explore Centro's street art, lighthouses and open-air exhibits.
Cool off in Centro's waterways by going wind surfing or sailing. De-stress like the locals in Centro. Go sunbathing and bird watching.
At the end of your adventure in this unique place, say farewell the way locals do, with a hearty "Adeus."
